Cornflake Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Publisher Photo
Being from the South, I've always enjoyed sweet potatoes as standard fare. I'm always looking for new ways to prepare sweet potatoes, and this recipe is my favorite. The topping provides a crunchy delightful contrast to the consistency of the mashed sweet potatoes.

"My favorite - the only time I really indulge. I make it with Splenda and Splenda Brown Sugar - still GREAT! (However I never use the amount of butter they suggest - especially for the topping, a couple of tablespoons at most - never 2/3 cup)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 13, 2013

"I agree that this is a fabulous recipe. Two substitutions to try are (1) Craisins instead of raisins, and (2) crumbled ginger snaps instead of corn flakes. If you have access to a Trader Joe's grocery, use their Triple Ginger Snaps for which they are famous. For an extra "kick" , add some brandy to potato mixture!"

"This just like the one my mother always made at Thanksging & Christmas. We always looked to having this side dish."
